Boyfriend, cousin might be innocent
THIS WEEK'S PROBLEM: My boyfriend and cousin are close friends. The problem is that I think she wants to be more than friends with him, but all he says is that he doesn't want anyone else but me. I really need help because I don't want to ruin my relationship with my boyfriend or with my cousin.

Rumors can lead to tears, so just give the facts, please!
A few weeks ago in the middle of my seventh-period band class, I heard possibly the saddest news a teenager could hear: Jon Heder, the star of Napoleon Dynamite, was killed in a car wreck. Immediately, tears fell down my cheeks. I am crazy about this actor and this movie with its ridiculous humor. (Seriously, I recite the lines every day!)
